From Matterhorn Creek  Sucess!

Made the long trek over from Matterhorn Creek in the hopes of climbing both Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn. Unfortunately, the weather was less than ideal, so we only got to Uncompahgre. I enjoyed the look of this mountain- very unusual.

Uncompahgre  Sucess!

This was one of my favorite 14'ers for a long time until I've done enough that it's hard to pick just one!

From Wetterhorn/Matterhorn  Sucess!

I started at the Matterhorn Creek TH and first summited Wetterhorn and Matterhorn. I then took the long way around on the SW slopes route to the standard trail. An awesome looking mountain but not very interesting for climbing.

Made the summit in 5:30 with a ctc of 7:40.

High indeed  Sucess!

Awesome hike, just don't stumble off that face that's 5 feet from the summit! Walk over to the slightly lower summit that overlooks Wetterhorn, Matterhorn, etc. for an awesome perch with even more exposure!

Matterhorn Creek  Sucess!

Uncompahgre was our very 1st 14er attempted back in June 2004, but we were snowed off the mountain at 13,100. This time we took the Matterhorn Creek TH. It was a gorgeous day, and beautiful views. We took a short cut up southwest scree field on the saddle. We were thinking about bagging Wetterhorn also, but decided to save it for another day! ;o)

Via Wetterhorn Peak  Sucess!

After summiting Wetterhorn at 6:30am, we headed over the L-O-N-G slog accross the valley... up and down and up and down... traversed all the way to the trail on the end of the ridge, and hiked up. What amazing drops from the summit! Only 13 more to go!!!!

Standard Route  Sucess!

Hiked over from Wetterhorn. Booked it down after an instantaneous flash/boom lightning/thunder combination while I was still at 13000 ft.

Nellie Creek TH  Sucess!

Just a damn nice weekend. The hike was nice and luckily the wheather held out long enough to summit. Not many people out that day and that was nice. One of the more scenic 14ers, but then again it is the San Juans which are just all around amazing.

I went up this one solo with the clouds chasing me, forntunately the rain and lightning didn't start until 20 mins after I came off the summit.
